I write features and artist profiles for, a US-based musical equipment auction site

The Quietus published this essay about Christian music in December 2018.

Art & Music is the Saatchi Gallery magazine, to which I contribute reviews and occasional features. Here is a feature about early British electronic music, which appeared in the autumn 2010 issue.

I wrote for Record Collector for nearly 20 years. Here’s a review.

This article for Music Tech magazine is based on an interview I did with Phil Beer, of Show of Hands.

Sometimes I co-write articles with specialists who aren’t writers, helping them to express their technical knowledge in a more accessible way. This article, for Learning Disability Practice, is an example.
